Rain_or_Shine*

Well-well-well...another self-portrait*
in the rain with my five dollars umbrella~

Good news; my PC is finally fixed after I threatened to
throw it out the window...I can be DRAMAtic sometimes!
Anywayyy,
was quite disappointed that I wouldn't be able to enjoy
the lovely Amsterdam without getting soaking cold-wet...
but what to do...the weather is always beyond our control.
But the city tour must still proceed and was more than happy
to click-click-click my camera ~rain or shine !!
...~Enjoy everyone:



Dubbed the “Venice of the North”, Amsterdam’s canals
are not only attractive, but they’re also a great way to travel
around the city. I didn't get to ride on any of the floating vehicles...
I would rather walk&walk&walk and burn some calories!
The buttery French food I had in Paris was starting
to show on my thighs!...you know, they seem to zoom-in
and get comfortable in that region/zipcode somehow~
.
Suddenly...
Hallelujah moment!
" I see the LIGHT! I see the LIGHT!!!"
[told ya' I'm DRAMAtic!]
.
The sun finally decided to show-up and my O'my...
the blue sky was truly gloriousssss...
Okie~ time to toss the umbrella & wore my sunglasses
...and reapply my pink lip-gloss of course! ~wink*
.




.....Don't we just Lurrrrrve
a happy*ending! ~XOXO*
